Rikki Pitter is set to leave Colaton Raleigh at the end of the current season.

Colaton Raleigh are beginning the search for a new manager.

That’s because player-boss Rikki Pitter, having guided Raleigh to a mid-table position in Division 2 of the Fresha League, has accepted an offer to become manager of Sidmouth Town Reserves from the start of next season.

A Colaton Raleigh spokesman said: “Riki has done a wonderful job for Raleigh during his five seasons in charge. He’s led the team from Division Five to Division Two whilst also reaching five Cup Finals. We have been aware for some time that other clubs have been talking to him and that he was seeking a new challenge. Although we do not want to lose him, we could not stand in his way and would like to wish him every success at Sidmouth Town”.
